This book, based on the author's own research and following a critical analysis of the literature, presents an account of the Pterophoridae or plume moths of the Balkan Peninsula. The geographical and Balkan distribution of the 94 species is described. The biology of the species is analysed, including the host plants, the preferred and potential habitats. Based on data from collections and literature, the flight times and number of generations of the species are given. Several species are difficult to name with certainty, and generalized drawings and diagrams are provided to assist identification.
No similar book has ever been produced in Europe. The habitus and genitalia illustrations are detailed and of appropriate size. The author has tried to present details and specific features accurately. Therefore, the book will not only be useful for the identification of Balkan Pterophoridae, but also for the study of Central European and European species in general. More than 200 illustrations have been produced by the author using a unique digital technique.
